If there’s one thing I know about people is that there are many kinds of intelligence. For example, we have Alex, who has what is traditionally called intelligence, then we have Maddison, who would be considered dim by many, but is perfectly capable of functioning in the world and serving a purpose too. In fact, Maddison is more likely to procreate than Alex, so on an evolutionary level she’s more likely to win out over time. Intelligence, like many gifts, is not always the blessing it seems like. Sometimes it makes people not do things that seem like mistakes, but ultimately would be a benefit. Waiting too long to have children, for example. Waiting for the perfect time to start a business. Not dedicating oneself to art, which leads to a comic that could have been much better. It’s hard to know what choices end up being the good ones sometimes.

I’ve seen a lot of friends do things that were dumb as fuck, in my opinion, at one time, that eventually led to great success & happiness. A lot of things that I didn’t do, in the name of good judgement, have conspired to ruin, by some reconings, aspects of my life. Intelligence sometimes makes those people who have it arrogant to the point of thinking they can see the outcomes of all events. It gives you a confidence level that can be detrimental.

Of course sometimes stupid is just stupid too, but it’s not always as easy to parse out as we think.

I’ve gotten some messages from people interested in getting me Xmas gifts. I’m very flattered, and if you’re hell bent on it here is the link to my amazon list:

LIST

It’s a completely insane list of things. Your safest bet is Lego, because it doesn’t matter if there are duplicates. Parts are parts. If you don’t want to do that you can email me for my shipping address, which some of you have already done. I can’t guarantee reciprocation anymore. I’m not fast enough to keep up with drawings as I used to be, but if you tell me your favorite character, or something, chances are my guilt will get you something at some future time.

Alternatively, you can pledge a dollar on patreon. A lot of people have fallen off of it in the last few months. I know it may seem like a dollar isn’t that much, but if 1000 people pledged it would add up. I think there are just shy of 400 supporters now and they have basically made it possible for me to keep making the comic, what with all the medical expenses. (The go fund me thing also helped a lot, but these bills never stop coming…)

I will eventually draw a sketch or an avatar image for any person who asks and successfully pledges on Patreon. I’m behind by at least a month, but I’m still chipping away at the list. Just be patient and I will get to you. After that you can request another sketch every month. It will get tacked to the end of the list and done in order received.

I send out a message every month that explains the whole deal. You can actually do the same thing directly through paypal, but they have really weird rules about stuff, so I’m hesitant to just use them. I do use them to donate a dollar a month to a podcast I like though. All I know is if you fuck up they take your money and freeze your account and stuff, which would be a massive disaster.

Also, if you ever just email me randomly, I reply to everything eventually. It can be several days later though, since everything that isn’t time sensitive is first come first serve. Also sometimes I accidentally delete messages on my phone, or think I’ve replied because I started writing a response in my head without actually writing it out. I know I have at least one message to reply to right now. I think Peg was the name. Don’t worry, it’s on my list.

I’ve got a doctor appointment tomorrow morning and possibly jury duty on Friday, I think. I have no idea how bad this week could go, but hopefully I’ll still be able to have pages ready for xmas week. I guess if I finally fail without actually being in the hospital my streak will be broken at a few months shy of ten years. Unless my memory is failing me March will be the tenth anniversary of the comic. I really hope I’m feeling well enough to do something special by then. Fingers crossed… at least when they aren’t being used.
